The Dead Girls' newest "hit song" that will never be heard on the radio (ha!) is called "She Laughed a Little," and it has become a staple of the bands' live shows. Since we put out the full-length "Out of Earshot" LP in 2010, Rocket Heart Records been itching to do a 7-inch with the band. When they went into Art House Studios to record "She Laughed a Little," we knew we had the perfect single. It's full of the upbeat, hooky rock that The Dead Girls are known for, and is guaranteed to get stuck in your head all day.

The B-side, "It's All Happening," is a treat as well. It's a one-off song written and recorded in four hours when Motion City Soundtrack singer/guitarist Justin Pierre came into town for a day. The Dead Girls then called up former Blackpool Lights/Creature Comforts/Ultimate Fakebook multi-instrumentalist J.D. Warnock to create a three-vocal/four guitar/six-man wall of sound. The epic super-catchy thumper of a song has since been remixed and remastered exclusively for this release. Simply put, it rocks.

We're throwing in two really cool never-before-released demo versions of Dead Girls songs as extra bonuses for different premium levels on mp3, "Standby" and "Watchful Eye." Keen ears might recognize parts that were reworked into "Out of Earshot" tunes. Posters, featuring badass artwork by Megan Borque, are autographed by all six players and are also available as premiums.

We're really excited about this super-limited run. All funds go right into the pressing, since we are a small vinyl-only label and we only put out records we believe in. Lend us a hand and help us release two of the coolest songs we've heard in a long time with some crazy awesome packaging. Viva la vinyl!!!
